Default MAD weekend

Two cracking courses and the weather was kind too, what a bonus!
Well done to all those that shot so well, whatever their calibre. It beat the hell out of me!
Thanks to Pete D and Mark W for their good company over the two days!
Cheers to the catering ladies (even though they ran out of bacon)
Many thanks too, to Deben!
